Opportunity Alert: Brexit Impact on EMEA Trading

December 31, 2020

Dear Manager,

We wish to inform you of some important corrections. The following updated items in the list of changes coming into effect on January 4, 2021.

CBOE UK on PPro8: traders will continue to have access to the BXE (aka BATS) and CXE (aka CHIX) books on LSE, LSE IOB, and Swiss (CBOE UK on Swiss securities is delayed, with an ETA in late January).

The CHXE gateway will be renamed to CBOX and will grant access to the CXE Lit and Dark books, while the BATE gateway will be renamed to BXE and will grant access to the BXE Lit and Dark books."

The CHIXE (Chi-X Europe) entitlement package will be renamed to CBOE, and traders who have this package enabled will be able to receive the CXE, BXE, and the new DXE book feeds. The fee for this package will increase to 65 GBP.

Traders will need to re-apply their CBOE and TRQS entitlements to receive the BXE and TQE feeds.

EMEA Markets Short Sell Restrictions Lifted [May 2020]

Please be advised that EMEA securities regulators have jointly decided to end their short-selling bans, citing less turbulent market conditions.

As a result, the previously applied short-sell restrictions for EMEA markets have been lifted, and shorts are available again for the following markets:

  • Brussels
  • Madrid
  • Milan
  • Paris
  • Vienna

For more information, please read the MarketWatch article on the topic.

Remember, you can request shorts on IRC (in the #shorts channel), via email (to Trade Desk), and in Metro.

New Sweep Order  [May 22, 2019]

We are happy to announce that effective Wednesday, May 22, 2019, we are releasing a new Europe sweep order type.

Traders can select the respective sweep destinations under the primary gateways. The new destinations are parallel to the existing primary destinations, except aggressive orders sent through these destinations will sweep all Lit and Dark liquidity and guarantee the best possible fill price.

Available destinations are as follows:
